Pressing the raspberries through a fine-mesh sieve will get every drop of juice into this refreshing limeade while leaving those pesky seeds behind. If you want to make it ahead, don't add the seltzer until the last minute.

Great holiday drink I wanted to make a beautiful holiday cocktail that had no alcohol in it. This got rave reviews from all my guests, and it's going to become a regular feature of my entertaining. It was tart, but sweet, and the combination of raspberry, lime and club soda was just perfect. Pros: Flavorful, colorful, exquisite blend of tart and sweet Cons: squeezing limes

If you want a "special" beverage, with eye appeal and great taste, make this. Enlist help with the lime sqeezing and pressing raspberries, but it is worth it. I considered making some into an adult beverage by adding some vodka, but I never did. We ended up drinking it all as is. But I think it would make a nice cocktail...
